EAST VILLAGE—The Verameat boutique is opening its doors this Saturday, July 2 with a fun-filled day of discounts and gratis beverages. Starting at 1pm, shop for dog skeleton knuckledusters and fried-chicken-chomping-dinosaur rings while sipping on complimentary smoothies. Then from 6pm to 9pm, go crazy with free wine, Dino cookies (sounds intriguing) and 25% off all purchases. [Racked Inbox; Previously]
